Mortuary sex horror shocks health officials

`Western Cape police are investigating an allegation of sex with a corpse at Salt River Mortuary, and the amputation and theft of a foot from another body.

And a reliable mortuary source said the sexual assault on a young male was “just the tip of the iceberg” and “several more young male corpses have been violated”. [..]

[Some spokesman] said that in [one case] the victim’s family would be contacted after police had established “beyond all reasonable doubt” that the corpse had been sodomised “post mortem”.

A long-serving police officer attached to the mortuary said that in an incident in 1989 mortuary staff had caught a half-naked policeman on top of a female corpse.’
